Stitch from Stash September

I can start this month's report with a finish - whoo hoo - but before that here's my monthly budget update. I really enjoy doing SFS15 with Mel - it's a great way to use up fabric, threads and charts and of course save a few pennies.
My budget start for September is :£65.00

Month: September
Spent: £10.67
Earned: £16.00 

My budget at the end of August is: £95.33

My spend was on restocking a few DMC threads and a few items for my Goody Bag ready for the Needlecraft Haven Meet Up in November.

I have finished The Herb Garden by Drawn Thread - I claimed for purchasing the chart in SFS15-Part A but have used fabric and threads from my stash. It is for a gift for a friend's retirement so I have not claimed the frame costs. I pick the frame up today so I will have to share the completed photo later. I earned £16.00 on this finish.

Herb Garden 
I have started a new project but as it's also a gift I can't share just yet, but it is all using my stash. Talking of gifts I have a new chart to add to my stash thanks to Barb who gave me this lovely LHN chart for my birthday a few weeks ago. I had so many lovely gifts - have a look in my previous post.

I hope everyone has had another successful month with a zero or limited spend - happy stitching and stash using for October.

Well done on your SFS Clare. I will be the one with "must try harder" written on my report lol! Although I have kept in budget!

Lovely gift from Barb.

Your Drawn Thread finish is beautiful.

Well done - I'm afraid this past month would have been a miserable failure for me if I were on a budget. Oh well. I'm still having fun ;0)

Successful SFS month. And such a wonderful finish. Herb Garden has so many lovely details and the bank in the center looks so very inviting.
